Millet Breakfast Bowl

millet breakfast

Introducing millet. Millet is considered a whole grain, but in fact it is a seed. Somewhat similar to quinoa, it is high in fiber and tons of other nutrients, in particular it is high in many B-vitamins and known to help protect against heart disease.

Millet can be cooked and eaten just like rice and quinoa. It is naturally gluten free and is reminiscent of couscous.

This recipe is a great starter millet recipe where it replaces your morning oatmeal. You should also try in our minestrone soup and add it to baked goods raw for crunch.
